National Press Club

Humorist Dave Barry Returns to NPC March 6

February 18, 2014 | By Nicole Hoffman |

Pulitzer Prize-winner and New York Times best-selling author Dave Barry returns to the National Press Club at 1 p.m. on March 6 to discuss his new book, ”You Can Date Boys When You're Forty: Dave Barry on Parenting and Other Topics He Knows Very Little About.” The event will be in the Conference Rooms. A book signing will follow the discussion.

This is a ticketed event and registration is required. Click here to register. Tickets are $5 for NPC members and $10 for non-members. The Club-member admission fee is waived with the purchase of a pre-ordered copy of the book, an option that appears on the ticket form. Limit one member-priced ticket per Club member. This event is a fundraiser for the NPC Journalism Institute. No outside books or memorabilia permitted. All sales are final.

In uproarious, brand-new pieces, Barry tackles everything from family trips, Bat Mitzvah parties and dating (he’s serious about that title: “When my daughter can legally commence dating—February 24, 2040—I intend to monitor her closely, even if I am deceased”) to funeral instructions (“I would like my eulogy to be given by William Shatner”), the differences between male and female friendships, the deeper meaning of Fifty Shades of Grey, and a father’s ultimate sacrifice: accompanying his daughter to a Justin Bieber concert.
